i have to agree with the '72-'74 post, it seems like every night those years had a new and original beauty of a jam in it. just to reccommend a few, try 12/31/72 - 40 odd minute truckin'->other one, 3/24/73 - dark star 2nd set, 3/26/73 - 2nd set jam that develops out of the weather report suite prelude, and 6/16/74 - eyes of the world->big river.
outside of those years (just two more), check out 4/15/70, the jam after drums but before the other one is ABSURD, and 2/18/71 - 1st set dark star->wharf rat(first ever)->JAM->dark star->me&my uncle; the jam after wharf rat is so so so so so good it just might bring tears to your eyes, in fact, it is so beautiful a piece of improvised music that it was included on the "so many roads" box set simply titled "beautiful jam."

the beautiful jam is really beautiful. i heard it on the grateful dead 'marathon' earlier this year... or last year... i have no idea but david gans did it and it was broadcast on nugs.net and after he played it he either played an interview from or read dialog from an interview with phil about it and phil said he didnt even remember playing it. yeah, if there is any way to get a recording of that marathon or any of it... it be excited. it included a TDSO in studio performance too. i dont think i danced any more then i did that day. ANYWAYS... thanks for the help once more.
